Health & Safety Measures

On your move-in date, you will arrive at the front entrance of our building to check in. We are located at 60 Harbord Street (Spadina Avenue and Harbord Street). Please ensure that you bring photo identification with you as you will need this to collect your welcome package and keys.

Our contactless welcome team will be on hand to process your move-in and answer any questions you may have, and we also have carts available that you can borrow to assist with your move.

Once you’re checked in, you’ll receive your mailbox key through our contactless pick-up method. You’ll use this key to access your welcome package and room fob in your mailbox.

Moving In

Face masks or face coverings are required in all University of Toronto buildings, including Graduate House.

To help with social distancing, we ask that you bring no more than 2 family members or friends with you to help you move-in. In order to provide a contactless move-in experience, our staff will not be able to assist in unloading or moving personal items. For the purpose of contact tracing all guests will be required to sign in at the desk.

Underground parking is available below Graduate House: (Lot N – Grad House) and there is a laneway at the east side of the building. However, you do run the risk of being ticketed if you leave your car unattended in the lane way. 

If you are an international student and will be traveling to Graduate House from outside of Canada, please review the information on this webpage.

How can I meet other Graduate House residents?

You will be assigned a Residence Advisor (RA) upon move in. Your Residence Advisor will reach out to you after you move in to set up a 1-1 virtual chat. RAs will also hold weekly virtual office hours to answer any questions, and support you with whatever you need!

We invite you to connect with other incoming and current residents on Facebook: Check out our stay connected section on our website.
